Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Risk factor, Body mass index and Diabetes mellitus. His study involves Prospective cohort study, Blood pressure, Insulin resistance, Obesity and Cholesterol, a branch of Internal medicine. His Endocrinology research incorporates elements of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and C-reactive protein.

His Risk factor research incorporates themes from Epidemiology, Proportional hazards model, Surgery, Relative risk and Physical therapy. David R. Jacobs interconnects Odds ratio, Cross-sectional study, Demography and Cohort in the investigation of issues within Body mass index. His Diabetes mellitus study incorporates themes from Red meat, Vascular disease, Physiology and Hazard ratio.

His most cited work include:

  • Compendium of physical activities: classification of energy costs of human physical activities. (3405 citations)
  • High-density lipoprotein cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. Four prospective American studies. (2686 citations)
  • Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis: Objectives and Design (2631 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

David R. Jacobs mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Young adult, Cardiology and Body mass index. His studies link Diabetes mellitus with Internal medicine. Endocrinology is frequently linked to Physiology in his study.

His Young adult study also includes

  • Cohort together with Cohort study and Cross-sectional study,
  • Gerontology most often made with reference to Demography. His Cardiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Subclinical infection and Surgery. His work in Body mass index addresses issues such as Odds ratio, which are connected to fields such as Confidence interval.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (68.77%)
  • Endocrinology (35.24%)
  • Young adult (23.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (68.77%)
  • Young adult (23.49%)
  • Cohort (16.00%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

David R. Jacobs spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Young adult, Cohort, Cardiology and Disease. David R. Jacobs combines subjects such as Diabetes mellitus and Endocrinology with his study of Internal medicine. His Young adult research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Middle age, Artery, Demography and Prospective cohort study.

His Cohort research includes elements of Epidemiology, Pediatrics and Cohort study. His Blood pressure research focuses on subjects like Confidence interval, which are linked to Odds ratio. In most of his Body mass index studies, his work intersects topics such as Obesity.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Gut Microbiota Composition and Blood Pressure (60 citations)
  • Human airway branch variation and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (47 citations)
  • Lactation Duration and Progression to Diabetes in Women Across the Childbearing Years: The 30-Year CARDIA Study (43 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

David R. Jacobs focuses on Internal medicine, Young adult, Cohort, Body mass index and Demography. His Internal medicine study frequently links to other fields, such as Cardiology. His research integrates issues of Middle age, Subclinical infection, Cognition and Risk factor in his study of Young adult.

His study in Cohort is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Blood lipids and Dyslipidemia. He has researched Body mass index in several fields, including Longitudinal study, Obesity and Pediatrics. His research in Demography intersects with topics in Dieting, Logistic regression, Smoking cessation, Cohort study and Diabetes mellitus.
